WGN’s ‘Underground‘ Season 2 open casting call in Savannah, Georgia.

WGN’s hit TV series Underground is now casting extras in Savannah, Georgia. Casting directors are looking for actors, models and talent to presumably play slave owners, slaves, and other featured roles in the TV series as it films in Savannah, Georgia.

Marty Siu Casting is looking for a ton of extras to work on the TV series. Producers are looking for people with “(no hair highlights, no visible tattoos, no braces, facial piercings, bright fingernail polish, etc…”

In addition, casting directors are looking for people who are local to Savannah, Georgia or can work as a local as production will not pay for your travel.

Filming starts on August 29th, and would like to work as a background actor on Underground, check out the casting call details below.


About Underground:

‘Underground’ follows a group of slaves who plan a daring escape from a Georgia plantation to cross 600 miles to freedom, aided along the way by a secret abolitionist couple running a station on the Underground Railroad, as they evade those tasked with bringing them back, dead or alive.

Underground Season 2 Casting Call

UNDERGROUND: The WGN network’s TV series, Underground, will be filming season two in Savannah Ga. I’ll need lots of extras for this show. Because it takes place in the 1800s its important that those who apply for this show have a look that can fit the time period (no hair highlights, no visible tattoos, no braces, facial piercings, bright fingernail polish, etc…). We’ll need classic looks, and average wardrobe sizes.

We will need folks who are local to Savannah GA, or can work as a local (meaning you have friends/family there that you can stay with) as production will not pay for travel.

We start filming on August 29th, and will have a schedule soon, of which background actors are needed for which days. In the meantime, if you are a Savannah/Tybee Beach area local, and would like to work as a background actor on Underground, please follow these steps to join our database for season two, and stay tuned to this Facebook page: Marty Siu Casting for updates.
